It's hard to keep a straight face around here

Tonight, Ethan walked into the room and told me "Daddy is mad, daddy goes (and he makes the sound of a big heaving sigh)" I said "what do you mean?" He said, "Daddy mad at computer" and then he makes that sigh noise again!! I cannot tell you how this made me laugh as it is a running joke with the people that know Marc very well in the work place (Kira!) that computer problems frustrate Marc more than anything. There have been times that I have thought he was going to hit his head against his computer screen in exasperation, so sighing is just the beginning of the sounds that are being emitted in frustration from our home office tonight. At the tender age of three, Ethan already knows what that sigh means..(Smirk)

Earlier today, Katie was playing with her Barbie and Diego dolls. These two have been an item for a few days now and they really look like an odd couple as Barbie is 3 times as tall as Diego. I told Marc that we need to get a Ken but we have not done that yet ;-) Katie has Barbie and Diego hugging, kissing, talking, walking hand in hand and just plain ol' enjoying each others company. Today, I overheard the following discussion between them. Barbie: "Diego, I love you..will you speak Spanish to me?" Diego: "Uno, dos, tres, quatro, sinco, seis." etc...you get the picture....OMG, where does she get this stuff?!?

That is too funny! My husband is a programmer and has a love/hate relationship with computers.

Katie has a beautiful imagination and is apparently not constrained by society's view of what a couple should look like :)

"Oh Diego, I just LOVE it when you count to me in Spanish..."

Umm, is it me or are they starting a lot younger these days? Sheesh!

Deigo will you speak Spanish to me..How FUNNY is that!!! I laughed so hard at that.

I'm not surprised that Barbie & Diego have gotten together. Have you seen the folks our kids hang around with? We're a wonderful conglomeration of different people - looks, languages, etc.

Marc can join David in the computer frustration these days. My geek can't get my new laptop to talk to our network. We hate Vista here.

I can relate to that sigh...I am sometimes mad at the computer too.

Funny observation when it comes from the kiddos though.

LOL oh that is so funny!!! I used to have a Ken doll and every time my Barbie kissed him...Ken's head rolled off LOL I must admit, Diego is quite handsome : )
